    Ok so I am new to the Cpanel stuff. I have a domain name and have setup my phpbb forum using Cpanel. Now I need to know how to edit my front page? Not my phpbb, the homepage. Right now I have it setup so the home address redirects you to the forums but I would like to have a frontpage with information on it and then have a link to the forums.

    Basically I need help creating and editing pages.

    Thanks.

    basically you create a file called index.html write the html code needed to create the page along woth the content, or use an html editor, then upload that page to the folder public_html

    your homepage will be index.html (or what ever extension you use).

    As long as you have created index.html with the content you want and placed it in the public_html folder then when you go to http://www.yourdomain.com/ then that index page should come up.

    Note: if there is a file in there already called index.htm then delete it (or rename it to old.htm).

    Hello,

    What you are seeing is the directory listing in your public_html directory. Inside this directory make a file named index.html or index.php. This file should contain the necerssary code for the links to your forum. For testing make a text file named index.html and write something in that and take your domain in the browser. You will see the writing in the browser.
